From Aug 2006 - Nov 2013 WeDig provided a live forum for diggers & fans of Vindolanda. It has now been mothballed and will be maintained as a live archive.

Here you will find preserved 7 years of conversation, photos, & knowledge about a site many people love. Vindolanda gets under the skin. (Figuratively and literally as a volunteer excavator!) It's a place you remember, filled with people you remember!

Thanks for 7 great years!

The barracks
Thank you, David. :)
I've really enjoyed snapping away and posting the results.
I hope that people don't mind seeing the same views over & over, but the site changes every week. I like to look back and see it all emerging, think the granaries look great, and the photos are a good record of all the “Oscars”, & friends we meet over the season.
Best wishes to them all,
Michael.

Do you think it could be that nasty rabbit disease Laura? :o .

One advantage of being a volunteer here is that you don’t have to decide what all this was, and when it was!

The barracks
All nicely washed clean by the rain and rain!….

The barracks
Moving along the road from west to east, the next two photos follow on….

The barracks
Moving along the road from the gatehouse, maybe a side road, then those large blocks on the right are the outer wall of the barracks.

Looking to the north, with the wall of west gatehouse in the foreground.

The barracks
Looking east from the west gatehouse, the road is outside the fence on the right. These three large blocks and those along the road edge are the outer walls from 3rd century buildings.

The barracks
:rolleyes: The Barracks as on 10th Sept. at the end of the 2008 season, which ended on 4th September. This series of photos were taken moving around the barracks excavation area, starting from the west, looking east. (The next photos follow on to the right hand side of the previous one)

Remember this?
Remember Bryan's photo? Watch the program, "What to eat now" (Vindolanda Rabbit Feast, featuring Sophie's School of Cuisine)
